Hunting for faries and playing pirates in spectacular Hawke's Bay landscapes is Eva's favourite hobby. Location family sessions with young children are where kids can use their imagination in a wild, completely unposed way. Eva's family portrait photography is not about creating a record of how you and your family looked during a moment in time, but capturing the magic of what it meant to hang out as a family, to love each other and to laugh together. And as big kids grow into young adults, straight-up, real-life portraits that are simple but powerful are what Eva's work is all about.

1. FAMILY SESSIONS $1350

This session is about relationships, and illustrating how they were for you as a family at one moment in time. As well as beautiful portraiture of your children, there is a focus on documentary-style candid shooting of you having fun together, so that your images become treasures to remind you just what family meant, felt and looked like at that moment in time. Family sessions include nuclear families and can also incorporate grandparents to document and celebrate that relationship.

INCLUDED:

- A lifestyle session anywhere you like around Hawke's Bay...at your place or a place special to your family (mileage beyond 40km from Napier applies).

-50 high resolution images on USB

-A beautiful 8x8" coffee table book with all images.

-A signed fine art print (A2 size)

-A private hosted slideshow of your session. 

2. INDIVIDUAL CHILDREN $875

It's playtime! Eva will spend time having fun with your child in an outdoors environment where there is room to express big personalities and tap into the imagination. Like bigger family sessions, the focus is on creating images that trigger memories for the future that go far beyond just a beautiful record of how your child looked.

INCLUDED:

- A lifestyle session anywhere you like around Hawke's Bay...at your place or a place special to your family (mileage beyond 40km from Napier applies).

-30 high resolution images on USB

3. NEWBORNS  & BABIES $875

Eva's style of newborn photography is candid and natural, with a focus on shooting your new baby in a documentary style at home where you are all most relaxed. It's about a tiny baby in dad's big hands rather than in a staged studio environment with props. The time you have your little newborn in your arms is so incredibly brief, and the memories often so foggy, which is why Eva's style aims to document the beautiful chaos along with candid portraiture.

INCLUDED:

- A lifestyle session at home, (about 2 hours, mileage beyond 40km from Napier applies).

-30 high resolution images on USB

-A beautiful 8x8" coffee table book with all images.

-A signed fine art print (A2 size)

-A private hosted slideshow of your session. 

FAQS:

* Eva only shoots one family session a week so please get in touch in plenty of time if you would like to reserve a session for a specific time of year (especially during the summer months when weddings are in full swing and families are 'back home' reconnecting with their roots).

* Family sessions are only available on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and when outside on location, are scheduled around the best light (first thing in the morning or late afternoon/early evening).

* Eva doesn't shoot extended families (reunions etc) but please get in touch if you'd like a referral.

* The best locations are those with special family memories, or where the sun position really enhances the creativity and ability to play together. Eva will discuss this with you before your session.

* Clothing should reflect who you are, but if you are uncertain, go for simple, classic clothing in a muted palette avoiding bold prints, logos and loud colours. It's about you, not what you're wearing. When you're choosing what to wear, consider a colour pop or hue that ties you together as a family and consider the seasons and colours of nature during that time of year.
